So on to the craft...
This isn't really a pinterest craft, though I'm sure it is on pinterest somewhere. It's just a hey, I can use this for this, perfect- kinda thing.
I emptied my coffee into my cute on top of the counter jar and was left with this nice empty can:
I only needed a few supplies for this quick project.
My homemade mod podge (for poor kids like me)
clear acrylic sealer (optional)
I cut the paper to fit on my can and wrapped it around as a test run. I coated the can first then placed the paper on a little at a time, making sure the edges were lined up as I went along. I went section by section until I had gone all the way around the can. Then I went back and coated the outside with mod podge. I think I did 3 coats total, then let it dry really well overnight.
The next morning I sprayed it with an even coat of acrylic sealer, just to be safe. I did this outside before I left for school at 7am. So it was still dark, so no photos. But you get the idea. It was dry a few minutes later and ready for the car. I popped it on my desk when I got to school and tossed in a few pencils.
Super simple, and it matches the bucket that holds all of my post its and passes. Easy Peasy.
